Human factors engineering is extremely integral to user/market adoption. Getting a product to market is difficult whether you are a struggling startup or an established original equipment manufacturer (OEM). Understanding some of the tools available on the front end of product development might help you avoid downstream problems, before they become time and money wasters.
